The Green Shoes Manual 1.1.362
Green Shoes contains three timers: the animate, every and timer. Both animate and every loop over and over after they start. The timer happens once. A one-shot timer.
The animate and every are basically the same thing. The difference is that the animate usually happen many, many times per second. And the every happens only once every few seconds or rarely.
The animate and every automatically start themselves.
Both types of timers automatically start themselves, so there's no need to use this normally. But if you stop a timer and would like to start it up again, then by all means: use this!
Note: Green Shoes doesn't support
Stops the animate or every loop.
Pauses the animate or every loop. If the animate or every loop is stopped, it is started. Otherwise, if it is already running, it is stopped.
